Delivering parking education
THE need for more education around parking legislation was identified as a key action by stakeholders at Sunshine Coast Council’s verge parking workshop on February 12 and since that time, council has developed and delivered several initiatives.
Transport Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski said the establishment of a working group, development of new educational fact sheets, updated and improved website content and an information pack for real estate agents were the first outcomes to be delivered.
The working group has developed a series of new fact sheets to help the community better understand requirements when parking in residential areas, considering neighbours and general parking in the Sunshine Coast area.
A dedicated parking information page has been created at www. sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ Living-and-Community.
The website includes information on residential parking, infringements and parking precincts, a parking issues register and references to abandoned vehicles.
